fisherman bobby barrack fighting mad. a group called the coalition for a sustainable delta is blaming his livelihood, the striped bass, for killing off native salmon by eating them. >> they need a escape boat. >> reporter: he -- a scapegoat. >> reporter: he says the real reason salmon are dying is because of all the water being diverted out of the delta and water he says flows to money. >> follow the money trail. these people that are making this statement, who finances them? >> reporter: tax documents show the top officers of the coalition are employees of paramount farms. >> paramount farms is located in the heart of california's san joaquin valley. >> reporter: the biggest producer of almonds and pistachios in the world. it's part of an agribusiness empire that includes pom pomegranate and fiji water owned by beverly hills billionaires stuart and lynda resnick. the resnicks also own a majority interest in this, the current water bank. it is one of the largest
undergroundwater storage facilities in the world. it allows them to buy delta water from the state, store it in their bank, then use it in dry years or sell it on the open market. so why go after striped bass? >> they're looking for anything that pins the tail on something other than their project exports. >> reporter: bill jennings with the california sportfishing alliance says it all started a few years ago when water exports were cut back to protect endangered salmon. jennings says the stripers can be blamed for the salmon decline instead, those restrictions could be eased and more water could flow south again. >> if we eliminate the environmental protections, they could take more water. >> reporter: paramount farms never responded to our calls, but we were able to talk to jonathan parker, general manager of the current water bank. >> the participants need a reliable water supply. >> reporter: he said six participants share the water bank. paramount farms is the biggest with 48% ownership.

operations. you can read more of the coalition's e-mail on our website at www.cbs5.com. >> it's like the new gold in california, water. >> always has been. >> boy, for sure. thank you. speaking of water, a precious commodity, rain also a precious commodity, we need that. the two kind of go together. >> as supply goes down, the value goes up. >> hopefully we'll get some next week. >> a little bit. we have to start somewhere. i think that somewhere will be toward the middle of next week, but yes, water is a scarce resource around these parts right now. live look outside tonight, south bay, san jose, dry, chilly, in the mid-40s in much of the south bay overnight. the 30s in santa rosa and napa down to 35, redwood city 44 degrees tomorrow morning. speaking of that lack of water officially in san francisco we're up to 55 consecutive days without any measurable rainfall. should have had more than 2 1/2
